New proposals are sought from academics working in CALL for sole-author or edited collections. More information can be found below and via the publisher’s series website:
Today’s language educators need support to understand how their learners are changing and the ways technology can be used to aid their teaching and learning strategies. The movement toward different modes of language learning, from presence-based to autonomous as well as blended and fully online modes, requires different skill sets such as e-moderation and new ways of designing and developing language learning tasks in the digital age.
Theoretical studies that include practical case studies and high quality empirical studies incorporating critical perspectives are necessary to move the field further. This new series is committed to providing such an outlet for high quality work on digital language learning and teaching.
Volumes in the series focus on a number of areas including but not limited to:
task-based learning and teaching approaches utilizing technology
language learner creativity
e-moderation and teaching languages online
blended language learning
designing courses for online and distance language learning
mobile assisted language learning
autonomous language learning, both in and outside of formal educational contexts
the use of web 2.0/social media technologies
immersive and virtual language learning environments
digital game-based language learning
language educator professional development with digital technologies
teaching language skills with technologies
